2012 Summer Reading Program Winners

BOOK-A-TRIP - READ AROUND THE WORLD

Book A Trip 

SUMMER READING PROGRAM ENDS WITH AWARDS PRESENTATION

The Baylor County Free Library ended their Summer Reading Program, Book A Trip – Read Around The World, with an Awards Presentation on Friday, July 13. Forty-two readers turned in completed logs, reading over 534 books for over 14,500 minutes – that’s over 241 hours! Not everyone turned in reading times, so there were even more minutes logged by these faithful readers.

In six weeks, patrons were treated to books, crafts and games from six countries – Africa, Asia, Europe, South America, North America and Australia. Awards and activities were made possible for this year’s program by Mr. and Mrs. Don Gregg, the Friends of the Library and the Lively and Plainview Extension Homemakers Clubs.
